What is Acupuncture therapy – Benefits and Side effects

Pain can affect almost every system in the body and develops from many sources. It can occur
from a chronic immune disorder, after an infection, from a physical injury, or from emotional
stress. Acupuncture treatment includes piercing of long, stainless steel and sterilized needles
on the pressure points of the skin. Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese method of treating
ailments. The word acupuncture is made of two parts – ‘acus’ – which means a needle, and
‘puncture’. Although I feel the pain in my back, the perception of pain is created in the brain.
Acupuncture works not only to heal the pain locally, in my back, but also in my brain.

The diagnosis of a patient includes many things like patient’s medical history and lifestyle,
examining the skin and tongue,listening to breathing sounds,pulse recording. It also includes
harm to internal organs, improper sterilization of the needles can cause infection, weakening of
your body’s system due to the reaction of needles and bleeding in the needle inserted areas.

Acupuncture therapy claims to be useful for treating a wide variety of conditions. These include
physical as well as psychological or emotional issues. It can be used to encourage continued
good health, relieve pain, prevent illness, or treat an existing illness. acupuncture may
provide symptomatic relief in many conditions like migraines, lower backaches, headaches,
fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. Acupuncture may also offer relief for certain postoperative
pains including dental pain, chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting, tennis elbow and chronic menstrual cramps.
The most common side effect experienced is soreness, bleeding or bruising where the needles are inserted.
